What causes inner turmoil? That internal struggle and pain? I think one of the things that causes our inner turmoil is our expectations. We dream and picture things, but what happens when it doesn’t go that way, or it costs you much more than you expected? If you do not respond correctly you will experience turmoil. However, belief that God truly will work things out for your good can save you from a lot of that turmoil and agony. We dislike the process and struggle now, but on the other side after you have been processED (changed) you can say to yourself it was good that I was afflicted.
God is blessing you, and who He is making you out to be. God isn’t blessing what you do as much as He is blessing who He created. You may not be able to look around right now and see how you will get out of your current circumstances, but God is blessing you in every circumstance. Sometimes the blessing doesn’t feel like blessing, you have to wait until you get through it to understand that He was using the circumstance to bless you. Don’t give up on who God says you are because of how things look right now. Keep building toward your future.
“Dream it, believe it, write it down, and with the Lord directing your steps walk until it’s real.”-Levi Lumm
